The student who saw the happenings said that the police moved in to clear the path so that the injured pupils could be sent to the Bekwai Municipal Hospital.

“One of the students suffered a machete slash. Others got badly hurt.” He pointed out.

He further recounted that after the Sabbath Service on Saturday evening around 8:00 PM, they saw what appeared to be a reprisal attack from a group of youth riding in rickshaws, a scene that angered the students to arm themselves with machetes to retaliate.

“The boys retaliated and ended up overpowering them and destroying one of their pragias,” he added.

Many other students have also left the school for safety, according to the student who has also evacuated out of dread of any deadly attacks, who spoke with reporter Ivan Heathcote-Fumador.
